In 1992 while performing at the world famous Tropicana cabaret in Havana, DJ PWM enveloped a variety of musical styles largely influenced by jazz and fusion, utilizing drums, congas, timbales, bongos and the traditional Afro-Cuban bata drums. From 1987-1992 he performed as principal percussionist with the Symphony Orchestra of Matanzas under the direction of renowned composer and conductor Leo Brouwer, embracing a range of styles from Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven to Stravinsky.
In 1995, DJ PWM relocated to Toronto and began producing and co-writing pop music with his wife singer/songwriter Naima. In 2000, he began to explore electronic music. Being exposed to new musical genres has allowed him to fuse his extensive background of classical music, traditional and popular Cuban rhythms and jazz, with the myriad of electronic genres, creating a new style of electronic music that he calls "TechnoSoul". After receiving many positive reviews, the first track he ever wrote, "Reflection on the Moon" was featured on garageband.com as Dance "Track of the Day".
